North Front of the President's House

This architectural sketch of the North Front of the White House was drawn by Samuel Blodget, Jr., a merchant and amateur architect and artist. A fainter inscription, possibly added by a different individual, indicates the sketch was made "in the Presidency of Jefferson and Madison" or sometime between 1801-1817. Blodget added the carved laurel branches, which were not in place at the time of the sketch.
